Midlands State University on Monday the 6th of September 2021 opened its doors to first-year, first-semester students. The new students who are drawn from various parts of the country will commence their academic journey with a week-long orientation and face-to-face teaching programme, which will be followed by online classes.
Unlike in yesteryears, when all new students from the University’s nine (9) faculties would converge all at once across the various campuses, this time around due to measures put in place to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 orientation and face-to-face classes will be in a phased manner. Orientation for the current group of students is expected to run until the 10th of September 2021, with the second group of first-year, first-semester students expected on campus from 13 to 17 September 2021.
As part of the blended orientation programme that has both physical and virtual elements, students will be introduced to life at MSU as well as undergo various registration processes.
Among those who welcomed the new students at the University’s Gweru Main Campus were the Pro Vice-Chancellor Business, Innovation and Enterprise Development, Professor Grace Mugumbate, the Registrar, Mr Tinashe Zishiri and the Deputy Registrar, Academic Affairs, Dr Kudzaishe Mudzingwa.
